Red hot news!

Deputy PM Zahid announces that GE 14 will be held within 180 days, that is a few weeks before it has to be held under the Constitution- Thanks a bundle Tuan. We would not have known otherwise! But, just a minute.

Does he mean what he says? There is more than one possibility. Will it be held at all? Does Najib, Zahid’s boss, really dare to face the electorate after all his thefts and other crimes? Or will he manufacture an “emergency” as an excuse to abandon elections for good? Would he tell Zahid about that in advance?

Your views are valuable to us, but Sarawak Report kindly requests that comments be deposited in suitable language and do not support racism or violence or we will be forced to withdraw them from the site.
